Favorite Word – 29 August 2020

I’ve often said I’ve never met a pie I didn’t like, but I remember that was so super-sweet it was cloying; I couldn’t finish eating the slice. That pie, I can honestly say, I didn’t like quite so much.

I feel really gormless.

I was amazingly distracted by quite a few disparate things and didn’t post my Favorite Word of the Week yesterday. Oops!

Favorite Word – 18 July 2020

This week’s word is lovely and very old. Its roots can be traced back through French to Latin.

benison

And I’m going to give you two-fer by sharing another word that also traces its roots back through French to Latin. (I learned this word first when I read Hamlet.)

orison

Can you guess why I’m giving the two-fer?
